Responsible Wool Standard
The Responsible Wool Standard label enables the sheep well being for wool production.
The RWS label guarantees:
Better land management practices
Sheep welfare respect(breeding, prohibition of mulesing, shearing, end of life)
The labelling by an independent certification body such as Ecocert validates the conformity of your practices according to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS).
Textiles containing RWS-certified sheep's wool (a mix with non-RWS-certified wool is not allowed).
Farmers who produce sheep's wool, manufacturers of textile products using wool, distributors and brands can be certified RWS.
